In 1975 Nicholas Nixon was visiting his wife’s family when he asked the four sisters: Heather, Mimi, BeBe, and Laurie to stand together for a picture. One year later at the graduation of one of the sisters he once again asked the four sisters to stand together for a picture in the same order from left to right as the year before. Every year for the following 35 years, 37 in total, Nicholas Nixon photographed the four sisters every year to document their growth together.

The photo series that almost spans four decades is an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The museum published a book called The Brown Sisters: Forty Years, to coincide with the exhibit opening.

Scroll through the gallery and watch these four sisters grow and age beautifully together.
